What are your general comments?

"Student interview was over lunch--real casual--appeared that many of the students did it for the free food. Student interview was real helpful in my case because it occured before the faculty interview (gave me heads up on the possibility of immigration question). I oversaw a student interviewer fill out a form after the interview in which they rank the interviewee between 1-5 in several categories (couldn't see what the y were) also area for personal comment. The interview with Dr. Zarro was short and it was hard to get a read on what he thought of me. Also, I felt he cut the interview short maybe so he could go to lunch." Report Response
